Also worth a quick check – does the ‘metadata_visibility’ flag on the eprint have the value set to ‘show’?  (this should be in the other defined fields section of the admin view of the eprint, and as a field in the ‘eprint’ table.  If this is set to ‘no_search’ then the item won’t appear in normal searches, browse views etc.

Hi Francis,

I notice your repository is not using the Xapian search engine - if you wish to use it, check this out: http://wiki.eprints.org/w/New_Features_in_EPrints_3.3#Search_engine_plugins

If not, you may:

1- look at the indexer logs for errors on that eprint (var/indexer.log)

2- look at the eprint__* tables in the database to see if there are any index codes for that eprint

3- try "reindex" with verbose and let us know of any errors/warnings

I have noticed that a specific eprint, http://eprints.iisc.ernet.in/47379/

id not getting indexed. Repeated attempts to re-index it using the command,

bin/epadmin reindex repoid eprint 47379 is not helping. The only way this

item can be retrieved is through the admin->search items->Username


How do I get this item indexed so that it can retrieved through the simple

and advanced searches?

Many thanks for your attention.
